Can I take a long break? Would I be allowed to work when I am back? Absolutely! As an independent contractor, you have totalеКcontrol over your schedule. If you want to take a break, be it for a short or long period of time, you can do that with no trouble. That flexibility is one of the many benefits of working as an AVOCADO shopper!
How do I purchase the groceries at checkout? AVOCADO shoppers purchase each order using a prepaid card provided by us. This card will be funded with the amount of your order (plus a little more for unexpected extras) before your delivery window begins. When you go to check out, the money will already be on the card! New shoppers can expect to receive that card along with their first AVOCADOеКS
What about taxes? How does that work? AVOCADO does not withhold any taxes from our shoppers' weekly paychecks. As independent contractors, AVOCADO shoppers are responsible for filing their own taxes. Those who earn above a certain amount will receive a 1099 from AVOCADO at the end of the year.
Will I get reimbursed for mileage? At this time, AVOCADO does not reimburse for mileage. However, this can be tracked and filed with your taxes at the end of the year! Consult a tax professional for more information.
Can my sister/brother/wife/friend/parent/child accompany me on shops? Unfortunately, they can not. At this time, AVOCADO shopping is a solo enterprise. AVOCADO shoppers may not bring anyone with them, including another approved shopper. Only the approved AVOCADO shopper who has claimed the order is permitted to shop for and deliver to the member.
What is the protocol for delivering to an AVOCADO customer? What you will do upon delivery will depend on the customer! Some will request you come inside, others will have you hand them the groceries at the door. Whatever the case, handle your interaction with the customer with kindness and understanding. You are acting as the face of AVOCADO, so be sure to represent your team well!
